So let me just call myself out on how bad I am at keeping up with my writing when things start to get busy! I seriously need to start pre-posting or find a guest poster to keep you guys entertained while I’m running around. Anyways, I’ll save the excuses and get straight into what’s been going on lately;
Well, prom AND wedding season are in their full, chaotic glory. I can’t even count how many emails, phone calls and bridal previews I’ve had in the past few weeks. Don’t get me wrong–Im certainly NOT complaining, I just have a lot goin’ on right now and I always feel like I have something to do or an email to return. Ahh, anxiety. On top of the usual peek-season craziness, it seems everyone and their mother wants to learn some new beauty techniques this spring so I’ve also been booking a bunch of beauty consultations & personal lessons. I’ve gotta say, I love the look on my clients face at the end of their lesson when they realize they can achieve the look they desire, and they can do it themselves! So gratifying.
Aside from that, I’m putting the finishing touches on my studio (OMG, yay!) and getting ready for my wine & cheese Grand Opening party later this month! I still can’t believe how great my vision came into reality and that its actually HAPPENING. It’s suuuuuper cute (if I do say so myself!) and I can’t wait to finally reveal it to everyone! I reached out to some local artisans & small business owners for door prizes and stuff to include in my goodie bags and I’ve been absolutely shocked at how generous people are! There really is still some good in this world.
I celebrated my birthday on Cinco de Mayo with a nice, relaxing day in and a lovely dinner with the boy. We decided upon a English-style pub in the next town over called Lord Amherst. I can’t believe it took us this long to try it! It’s a perfectly cozy place right downtown along the Detroit River where they serve local craft beer and traditional “pub” food with a gourmet twist. In the spirit of Cinco de Mayo, I indulged myself in my first-ever Tequila Sunrise and loved it! We ordered a Stuffed Yorkie dinner and Steak & Guinness Pot Pie to share, I of course dove right in without thinking to take a photo like the
hipster foodie that I am. Oh well, I’m sure we’ll return!
Although I thoroughly enjoyed my quiet, low-key birthday, I am definitely looking forward to Thursday when we continue the celebration at Caesar’s Palace with the Ellie Goulding concert! Back in March I spotted that she would be coming to town and my hubz being the sweetheart that he is, made us arrangements to see her and spend a couple nights at the casino. I’m such a lucky gal. I intend to dance and drink my little heart out, and hopefully win a bit of cash if Im lucky!
Well that’s about all the excitement going on in my part of the world. Now that its down in writing it doesn’t seem so crazy, but I’ve felt so rushed and scheduled the past couple weeks. I just need to make it til June! Anyways, what’s going on in your life? Any events coming up or exciting summer plans? Better yet, who has some gambling tips/good luck charms?! Haha!
